Congratulations on your Engagement
Sarah & Daniel
The wedding of
Sarah & Daniel
The Village Hotel - Cheadle
So! first of all congratulations on your engagement!
I'm so excited to tell you that I have your date free and I can't wait to hear all about your plans.
it's so important to know what style of photographer and videographer you are looking for, as we aren't all the same.
I thrilled my style is what you are looking for which I describe as Bright, fun and full of emotion (but mostly capturing real moments naturally as they happen).
I want to take a weight from your shoulders by telling you that 12 years in the wedding industry means I have a huge wealth of knowledge in all things wedding and i'm excited to share that with you.
I would love to help you with all aspects of your wedding planning, if you need me
I'm not just a photographer but a friend with as much excitement for your wedding as you have.
Planning a wedding can really be a huge mix of emotions from nerves to excitement and being a previous bride I've been through them all. I have a wealth of wedding knowledge and I really do love to help.
About your photographer
Hey so i'm a 38 year old Disney loving crazy chatty mum to 4 beautiful children aged 20,18,15 and 13 as well as crazy dog named Maui & a 2 barmy cats named Maleficent & Loki.
That's me right there with my youngest daughter Nicole.
My life is never dull but I love every minute of the ride.
I've been married for the past 7 years but have been with my husband for 23 years now, we are childhood sweethearts and he's my soulmate.
I'm chatty, fun and laid-back and often my customers describe me as becoming a friend. I get along with everyone and will chat with your guests to blend in perfectly. Infact becoming one of your guests,is how I can perfectly capture your day without interruption.
I have been a full-time wedding photographer for the past 12 years and more recently in the last 5 years, I've ventured into wedding videography & film making. I've always done friends and family photography before finally taking the leap of faith to start as a business, and now I'm doing what I love ...... capturing the perfect memories that you will treasure in years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes. We are fully insured. We have full public liability insurance. If your venue would like a copy of this we would be happy to pop that across.
WHAT IS THE DEPOSIT AND WHEN IS THE FULL BALANCE DUE?
So your deposit is classed as a booking fee, it's non-refundable in the event of cancellation but does come off the price of the package chosen.
The cost of the booking fee is £200 for just photography or just video and £300 for our combined package. Your date is not secure without a booking fee and signed contract. Final balance is due 4 weeks prior to your wedding date and we tie this in with a meeting on the phone or in-person to discuss all your final details.
WHAT IF YOU'RE ILL ON OUR BIG DAY?
This has only ever happened once to me in the 12 years I've been in the profession and that was last year when I unfortunately contracted the dreaded covid. Within 2 days, whilst poorly I was able to cover both photography and videography for a wedding day and that's because thankfully I have a large network (over 900 members) of North West wedding photographer friends, some I work very closely with whom I can fall back on.
SO, VIDEOGRAPHY SEEMS SO CHEAP. WHY IS THAT?
This is a question we are often asked, and we understand why! Seems too good to
Well its simply because we are already there! There are 2 of us that work on the day and whether that be photography, video or a combination of both you are guaranteed to get the most out of your package because we are both able to cover everything needed.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE GET/HOW LONG WILL MY FILM BE?
This is very much a how long is a piece of string question as it depends massively on what's happening on your day. We do not limit your photos or footage.
Photos are an average of 800-1000 for a full day and film footage depends massively on how long your ceremony takes, length of speeches etc.... an average of this is around 45-60 minutes for your full film.
WHAT IF YOUR CAMERA FAILS?
I carry 3-4 cameras with me at all times, I have a backup in the boot of my car so if the worst should happen and a camera breaks. I can quickly access another so will never be without a camera on your big day.
DO YOU DO ALBUMS AND PRINTS?
Yes, we offer albums and prints, prints are available to order directly through your gallery and albums can be ordered through me at any time, sometimes we have an offer where your album will be free, this will be included within your personalised quote.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU AT OUR WEDDING?
No! you don't have to feed us. It's lovely to be offered a meal as it means its one less thing to think about but we are just as happy to bring something along or nip out for food whilst you and your guests eat.
HOW LONG WILL MY PHOTOS AND VIDEO TAKE TO COME BACK?
Our general timescale for photography is 4 weeks after your wedding date and the film is 6 weeks. These times can be subject to change in extremely busy periods but this is very rare.
HOW DO WE VIEW OUR PHOTOS?
You will receive an email containing a link and a personal password to our online wedding gallery. This will allow you to view all images from the day, as well as selecting those you would like for your album.
CAN WE GIVE YOU A LIST OF SHOTS WE WANT?
Yes of course! I don't need shots such as coming down the aisle or first kiss as these are a given, I will capture every aspect of your day as naturally as possible but you are welcome to give me a list of group shots and specific requests, this is done through our photography questionnaire that is received shortly before your big day. We also offer a meeting 4 weeks prior as its important to discuss exactly what YOU want from your photography and film.
CAN FAMILY AND FRIENDS VIEW OUR IMAGES?
All images are placed onto our password-protected site. If you give friends and family the password they can also view your images and buy any images that they’d like.
WHAT SHALL I DO IF IM READY TO BOOK?
Well, I would absolutely love to be your wedding photographer/Videographer so if you are ready to go ahead and book then all we need is a signed contract as well as a booking fee per service as stated above, this to secure the date, not forgetting all the important details of your amazing day.
